Pain Management

Managing your pet’s pain is one of our highest priorities. We know that pain impairs healing and, more importantly, is inhumane. We place utmost importance on your pet’s comfort and well-being. Allowing an animal to suffer pain is, in our view, unethical.

At VCA Amherst Animal Hospital, we have several options for controlling pain. These can include oral medications, injections, constant infusions, nerve blocks, regional analgesia and sustained release pain patches.
